He has two others which present more like blood blisters (?) and do not grow out of him like a dried scab worm?! The circumference of the reddened portion is probably 1/2” at most, a bit under that probably. The circumference of the scabby stick worm looking growth is probably 1/4”. It does eventually break off or i can pick it off but it hurts him a bit so i hav left it alone. It takes about a month to gro out to a length of 3/8” or so. It doesnt seem to itch him or hurt him otherwise. He is grain free totw food and i give him raw wenever i can. Anyone seen this before?

    Nick had something sort of similar. It started off looking like a normal, small skin tag. About 6 months later, it looked like this...

    We had it removed, and it was Dermal Hemangiosarcoma. Vet got clean margins, and he was cancer free for 4 years, then developed Lymphoma.
    We lost his 3 years ago this month.

    I sent pictures to Dermatology. It was hard for them to see but they were thinking that she was injured because I told them she was banging into my heavy furniture outside a few days earlier. The part that is like a stick was gone the next day. I'm going to take her in for a pre dental cleaning exam and have them look at her mouth more closely. I also need to take her to Dermatology for her Cytoytopoint injection.
